Upper School: Key Stage 4
This department includes students in Years 10 and 11. Classes are not grouped according to age. There are no specific Year 10 or Year 11 classes. Classes usually include students from both years, grouped according to primary need, social need and attainment level. There will continue to be a high level of adult support to enable all students to access learning and make progress.
Students continue to follow a modified and developmentally based national curriculum with additional differentiated input to support communication needs, but may be taught by a wider range of teachers. Students are also able to access a number of vocational subject options to further personalise their learning. Students will be entered for nationally recognised qualifications that best match their levels of attainment and progress. For detailed information about our learning offer, please see our 2018-19 whole school curriculum document. Alternatively, just view the Upper School Curriculum Document.
All students who completed Year 11 at Oak Lodge in 2017 and 2018 moved onto further programmes of learning; either in our Post-16 department or at local FE colleges.
Because of their special educational needs, students who attend Oak Lodge have attainment levels below expected standards for their age. Therefore it is not applicable for the percentage of pupils achieving GCSE English and maths at grades A*-C, achieving the English Baccalaureate, or making expected progress for their age to be published in the same way as a mainstream academy.
